  1. Is my setup allright?

    I would not put the tank close to kitchen because too much gas and oil can pollute the water
  2. Does my new hammer look normal?

    They prefer less flow than frogs. But don't place them too close to each other.
  3. IM 20 Nuvo Fusion (livestock)

    If you place this many rocks, your space for coral growth is limited.
  4. Cloudy water, need help

    You are going to spend time cycling your time anyway. Don't worry. For nano tanks, don't use sand that is too fine.
  5. Algae ID

    I just put in some phosguard. Let's see what happens. What troubles me is that my snails don't eat it. They cleaned all other algae in the tank.
  6. Algae ID

    I don't think nutrients is the problem. There is almost no sign of other algae. Two small clowns and one cleaner shrimp. I target feed frozen only. Water change every week. No sign of phosphate and nitrate. Nutrients problem typically cause algae boom. This algae I am showing is slow growing. That's what makes me puzzled. I am reduce the light intensity a little to see what happens.
  7. Algae ID

    20g only. I tried to plug out the aglae with tweezer. It seems that the aglae has a root into the rock which makes it hard to get out. It is slow growing although. My concern is only preventative.
  8. Algae ID

    I am attaching more pics. I have trochus and astrea snails. They don't eat it.
  9. Algae ID

    There is a film of light green algae on my rock that is not eaten by any of my snails. Anyone knows what are they and how to get red of them?
  10. Skimmer for IM Nuvo 20?

    The smaller the skimmer, the more frequently you have to adjust it. I run fusion 20 as well without a skimmer. Use poly filter pad to remove organic, it is highly effective.
  11. How do we know anaerobic bacteria is established?

    It is impossible to rely on bacteria to export nitrate unless you dose commercial products that contain large amount of bacteria and use protein skimmer to export the dead ones.
  12. Fuge Light

    I put chaeto in a breeder box placed in the display. The chaeto grows crazy because it shares the good display LED. https://www.amazon.com/Petzilla-PBI-1-Aquarium-Breeder-Hatchery/dp/B01GHG1VHQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1512151301&sr=8-3&keywords=breeder+box You can use a small size float cleaning magnet to to place it on the wall of the tank.
  13. My clown fish is a pig and my goby is slow

    My whole point is try to feed frozen. You can drop in more food without worrying too much about polluting the water.
  14. My clown fish is a pig and my goby is slow

    Feeding mysis with the powerhead on might help both the goby and reduce nitrate. When I feed frozen, my filter sock gets cleaner. The pellets contain a lot of nutrients that the fish does not absorb. They all get to pollute the water.
  15. TeenyReef's 10g Fusion - February FTS

    Why these monti has very coarse textures?
